The link in the fake email message goes to a fake PayPal web page on a compromised website.
The link to the fake PayPal is: http://www.cswl168.com/us/login.htm.
The fake PayPal web page was designed by scammers to trick their potential victims into entering their PayPal username, password and credit card information.
If the requested information is submitted by the potential victims, it will be sent to the scammers, who will use it to steal their money.
If you are tricked into submitting your PayPal credentials and credit card information on the fake web page, please change your PayPal password immediately and contact your bank and let them know that you have submitted your credit card information on a phishing website.
Remember, never click on a link to sign into your PayPal account, always go directly to: www.paypal.com and login from there.
